Dried and preserved flower arranging 
workshops

Flower arranging classes and workshops at our Marlow flower school offer an opportunity to explore your creative side and master the essentials of floral design.

 

Fresh flowers may not always be the most practical choice. That's why we advocate for preserved and dried alternatives—a sophisticated, low-maintenance option that upholds both aesthetic appeal and ecological responsibility.

 

Our workshops are designed to make the art of flower arranging accessible for all. We will share tips and tricks to create long-lasting bouquets that are not just beautiful but also eco-friendly, long lasting and easy to care for.

 

Dried Flower Arranging Workshops are a wonderful way to socialise, learn design techniques, and create a beautiful flower arrangement to display at home or give as a present.

 

Our hands-on classes are suitable for everyone who loves flowers, no matter your experience level.  Come and create in a comfortable setting with all tools, flowers and foliage included.

Dried and preserved flower design workshops

  • How are Neverending Flowers different from other florists?
    Just like traditional florists, we supply flower arrangements made from real flowers. The difference is that our flowers have been processed using natural eco-friendly formulas, which stops them withering and makes them look fresh and vibrant for at least a year. The preservation process also removes pollen, and this means that our flowers are hypoallergenic.
  • Are these silk / artificial flowers?
    Our flowers are real flowers. They are grown on plantations in Peru, Ecuador and Kenya, picked just before they start to open, and put through a process that preserves their fresh looks.
  • Are the flowers freeze-dried?
    The flowers are not freeze-dried. They are preserved using vegetable oils, so the petals keep their elasticity.
  • Are preserved flowers sustainable?
    With the world becoming more conscious of the environment, the demand for sustainable floral solutions continues to rise. Preserved and dried flowers offer both aesthetic appeal and ecological responsibility. Preserved flowers are long lasting, reusable and biodegradable, which reduces their carbon footprint and makes them an eco-friendly choice for those seeking sustainable floral options.
  • Do preserved flowers have a smell?
    Pollen gets removed from the blooms during the preservation process, so preserved roses, peonies, carnations and hydrangeas lose their smell. If you like to have a gentle floral scent, this can be added on request. On the other hand, eucalyptus and lavender retain their natural oils so the fragrance will linger for a few months. Dried grasses and flowers do have a residual smell.
  • Are preserved flowers suitable for people with hayfever?
    Preserved flowers are a great alternative for those with allergies as they do not produce pollen, reducing the risk of triggering allergic reactions.
  • How long do preserved flowers last?
    Depending on the type of flowers and the environment they are kept in, preserved and dried flowers will last from 6 months to 3 years.
  • How can I make my preserved flower arrangement look its best and last longer?
    Optimum conditions for preserved flowers are quite relaxed: humidity at 50%-80% and temperature around 20 degree Celsius, which is common for most offices and homes. It’s important to keep them away from direct sunlight and away from water.
  • Can preserved flowers be used in outdoor settings?
    Preserved flowers can be used in outdoor settings, but it's essential to provide them with the ideal conditions to ensure their longevity. These delicate blooms thrive in indoor environments with controlled humidity and minimal exposure to direct sunlight. However, they can withstand short periods outside in cold or sunny weather for a few hours, as long as they are kept dry. In the United Kingdom, where the weather can be unpredictable, it's advisable to display preserved flowers outdoors during dry and mild weather. Avoid exposing them to rain or excessive moisture, as this can compromise their preservation and lead to a shorter lifespan. When planning to use preserved flowers for outdoor events or decorations, consider placing them in sheltered areas or under canopies to protect them from unexpected showers. Remember, while preserved flowers can handle some exposure to outdoor conditions, their best and longest-lasting performance is achieved when they are kept indoors, away from direct weather elements. By providing these lovely blooms with the right care and attention, you can enjoy their beauty and charm for an extended period, enhancing any indoor or sheltered outdoor setting with their everlasting appeal.
  • Can you preserve my fresh flower bouquet in resin?
    We appreciate your interest in preserving your cherished memories. However, our specialty lies in creating exquisite bridal bouquets using preserved and dried flowers – a meticulous process that involves working with suppliers that grow fresh flowers and then carefully process them to retain their natural beauty and elegance over time. While we do not provide resin preservation services, our preserved flower bouquets are designed to be long-lasting and serve as treasured keepsakes for years to come. The preservation technique we employ ensures that the bouquet remains stunning and virtually maintenance-free, allowing you to reminisce about your special day with fond memories.
